"I feel compelled to write songs about core beliefs that define who we are as people. Love for oneself, one's family, one's community and the world at large." Steven Graves
Steven's musical career is unfolding just as is his dream and vision for a better world.
Steven's unique and inspiring sound reflects his roots as a Californian, seamlessly blending elements of folk-rock, Americana, country, jazz and blues with his socially-conscious lyrical style. The influences of Dylan, Lennon, Marley, The Band, Neil Young (whom Graves' voice is eerily reminiscent of) and others, who have infused their music with social and political meaning, echo throughout Graves' artistry. The masterful way in which Steven combines the wide breadth of musical styles propels his messages of peace, love and understanding into the hearts and minds of all who listen.
